Michelle Madrid is an adoptee empowerment coach who has lived both sides of the adoption experience, giving her the insights to create Let Us Be Greater, the first book to explore the sense of loss, abandonment, and pain experienced by adoptees to help them heal

Adoption is a lifeline of support and opportunity for thousands, but it also brings challenges and emotional conditions that are often silenced or left unaddressed, including PTSD, risk of suicide, and fear of abandonment. Written from the perspective of an adoptee empowerment coach, adopted child, and adoptive parent, Let Us Be Greater is the first book to acknowledge and address these issues in an honest, authentic, and transformative way. Michelle Madrid has learned that the complex emotions and psychological turmoil of adoption -- including feelings of involuntary exile, anger, distrust, confusion, and unworthiness -- are best healed through identification, exploration, and understanding.

Named for her adopted daughter (whose name, Tiblet, is Ethiopian for "let her be greater"), this book arrives at a time when adoptees are mobilizing, connecting, and standing up for truth and transparency in adoption. It will show readers how to transform pain into promise -- and limiting beliefs into limitless truths -- by helping them:

- compassionately explore the eight pain points and the core losses of adoption
- unlock their truth (rather than live someone else's narrative) to claim their fullest identity, including biological details
- recognize the words that have harmed them and instead choose words that heal
- identify where the residue of distrust may still be showing up in their lives
- gain perspective on the importance of transparency, acceptance, and community along the journey of adoption

Written with compassion and authenticity, Let Us Be Greater will help adoptees and their families feel heard, seen, and understood as they work to build open, fulfilling, and healthy relationships.

Michelle Madrid is a former foster child from the UK, international adoptee, mom by adoption and birth, Emmy-nominated TV news journalist, and adoptee empowerment life coach. She is an Angels in Adoption(R) Honoree, a prestigious recognition given by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI), and has been inducted into the New Mexico Women's Hall of Fame for her work in adoption.
